Netherlands Fellowship Programmes

Thursday, August 1, 2013
The Netherlands Fellowship Programmes (NFP) provides training and education through fellowships for professionals in order to promote capacity building within organisations in 50 countries.

The NFP is initiated and fully funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the budget for development cooperation.

The aim of the NFP
The overall aim of the NFP is to help increase both the number and the competencies of skilled staff at a wide range of governmental and non-governmental organisations. You have to be nominated by your employer to be eligible for the fellowship. There also has to be a clear need for training within the context of your organisation.

The target group
The NFP target group consists of professionals who are nationals of and work and live in an NFPcountry. The chances of obtaining an NFP fellowship increase if you live and work in Sub-Saharan Africa and/or if you are a woman.

The fellowship
An NFP fellowship is intended to supplement the salary that you should continue to receive during the study period. The allowance is a contribution towards your costs of living, the costs of tuition fees, visas, travel, insurance and thesis research, as specified in the NFP Rules and Regulations for fellowship holders.

The application deadline is 1 Oct 2013.
